    Topic: Hitting the conservation nail with our phylogenetics hammer

    Host Lab: Wolkovich

    Abstract:
    Many evolutionary biologists embraced the idea that phylogenies offered a guide to prioritizing taxa and places for conservation; finally, our work could be put to good use. However, 25 years after Dan Faith formalized the idea (in a paper now cited >1400 times), we...

    Topic: Herbivory through the ages: Revealing effects of climate on insect herbivory with herbarium specimens

    Host Lab: Davis

    Abstract:
    Herbivory by phytophagous insects is ubiquitous and has effects that cascade from damage to individual plants to altered nutrient cycling through ecosystems. Yet, how herbivory has responded to anthropogenic environmental change remains unclear, because historical monitoring of insect herbivores...
